Students explore a variety of mathematical functions and real world applications of functions to understand the concepts of domain and range.
In this activity, students find the domain and range of various real-world problems. The first problem involves exploring an equation that models the height of a sunflower plant over time.
There are extra problems at the end of the activity for students to complete either in class or for homework. These problems include sine, logarithmic, quadratic, and square root functions.
